Vodafone, 3 confirm plans to carry iPad 2 in UK

updated 10:40 am EDT, Wed March 16, 2011

Carriers stay ambiguous on release dates

The UK branches of Vodafone and 3 have both confirmed their intentions to sell the iPad 2. The carriers are mum on exact details, but are likely to carry over existing data plans. 3 charges 20 for 15GB of data a month on a two-year contract, or 15 for 10GB on a month-to-month basis; a contract also knocks down the price of the hardware. Vodafone is charging 10 for 1GB, 15 for 3GB and 25 for 5GB per month.

Both of the carriers are extremely vague on when they will begin sales, however, only promising a launch "in the coming weeks." Apple's official iPad 2 date for the UK remains March 25th. There is increasing worry that the company may have to delay an international launch because of demand in the US. A similar situation occurred with the iPad 1 in 2010, forcing the international audience to wait an extra month.
